NBA Live '09 Review

HOLY CRAP THIS IS THE WORST BASKETBALL GAME EVER MADE! Ok, now that I got that out of the way, let me explain why. Lets start off with the big new feature, DNA NBA 365 24/7. I don't know what it is called actually, and I don't really care....

 
 
 

FIFA '09 demo impressions

I love football. Not the American gridiron game, but real football. The game that "sissy's" play with no padding on, colliding into each other, using only their feet, trying to shoot a ball into a net. You know, REAL football. So it is no s...

 
 
 

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed & EndWar thoughts

While watching GameSpot's coverage of E3, I got to see demos of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and EndWar. I've been very excited for Force Unleashed, but after seeing this demo, I think that I'm gonna be playing this game all the time. The...

 
 
 

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed launch trailer

For some reason, Lucasarts decided to release the launch trailer for the upcoming Star Wars game. I found this kind of weird considering the game is over two months away, and game companies usually don't release launch trailers until a we...

 
 
 

Lord of the Rings: Conquest trailer

A few months ago, Pandemic announced they were working on a Lord of the Rings game that was the same style as the Star Wars: Battlefront games. Over the weekend, the first trailer for the game was released. I have mixed feelings about the g...

 
 
 

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith set list revealed.

I didn't see anyone post this yet, so I thought that I would post it real quick. I think most of Dtoid is kind of "meh" towards this game. The set-list still looks decent. I like the inclusion of STP, even though that same song is part of t...

 
 
 

Mirror's Edge fan trailer, made by yours truly

So this is a fan trailer I made for Mirror's Edge. Since there is only one trailer out for the game, it is basically a re-edit for that trailer. When more media is released for the game, I'll make a second version. I basically made this ver...

 
 
 

Game of the year is here!

While browsing GameTrailers today, I found a trailer for an upcoming game that looks better than GTA IV and MGS4, combined! You might be asking yourself, how come I haven't heard of this game? I don't have an answer for that question. All...

 
 
 

GTA IV & Assassin's Creed: Similar Games?

I know what you might be thinking to yourself, how is one of the best games of 2008 similar to the most over-hyped game of 2007? One is extremely sci-fi, the other is a crime game. One is extremely well received, the other had mixed revie...

 
 
 

New FIFA '09 details surface.

For being an American, I'm a pretty big fan of soccer. Along with that, I've really enjoyed the FIFA series on this generation of consoles. I like how they reworked the engine to have better ball physics and great animations. While FIFA '...

 
 
 

Killzone 2 walkthrough impressions

In case you haven't checked GameTrailers recently, they have three new videos of Killzone 2. It is a developer walkthrough at a recent Sony press event. After E3 '05, I think everyone has been paying attention to this game. I think one of t...

 
 
 

EA disappoints me

Over the past few years, it seems like EA is the company in the gaming industry to bash. While they used to be king of the gaming industry, they have fallen due to poor company management and releasing average games. As of late, I started...

 
 
 

Non-Gaming Review: "H.A.A.R.P"

Yesterday, the popular European band Muse released their second live DVD, "H.A.A.R.P," in North America. It features a live show that they performed last June at Wembley Stadium in London. If you have never heard of Muse, you are not alo...

 
 
 

Best Buy sale

Just thought I would let you guys know that Best Buy is having a sale on a lot of Xbox 360 games. I just picked up Assassin's Creed for $40. I also saw The Orange Box and Tony Hawk's Proving ground for $40. There are other games on there ...

 
 
 

Non-gaming review: Sweeney Todd

While growing up, I always felt kind of separated from my siblings. We all got along great, but my siblings loved musicals. Being the nerd in the family, I didn't really care for musicals. I didn't mind watching them, but if I had the cho...

 
 
 

New Brothers in Arms: Hells Highway video

On an Italian video game site, they have a new gameplay video up for the upcoming Brothers in Arms game. I'm really looking forward to the game, and if you are too, you should watch this video. It shows a lot of gameplay from a mission. Thi...

 
 
 

Is anyone else keeping an eye on Turning Point?

For some reason, every new trailer that comes out for Turning Point makes me what to play it. When I learned that Spark Unlimited was making the game, I forgot about it because the Call of Duty games on the last gen consoles were absolute...

 
 
 

Like serial Rockstar, I want GTA IV now!

Well, like you all know, there was a new GTA IV trailer that came out yesterday. I think it is funny that we get all excited about a new trailer. But yeah, even more of the game was shown. I'm incredibly excited for this game now. The thin...

 
 
 

Getting Call of Duty 4 tomorrow.

If you want to join up with me on Live, my GT is brandonw00. Just add me on Live, maybe mention in the message that you are from Dtoid. I'll see you guys online.

 
 
 

Hitman movie being watered down?

Well it looks like Fox is ruining what could have been a good movie. According to the guys at firstshowing.net, they have received an insider tip that says Fox is editing Hitman from an explicitly violent movie to a PG-13 movie. "Given th...

 
 
 

Last skate video I promise

I had the craziest crash/glitch happen today when I was playing the skate demo. And guess what? You can see it for yourself. Glitch FTW!

 
 
 
 

Greetings from college.

Hey Dtoiders. I haven't had a new blog post in a while. The past few weeks I've been getting used to the college life. I'm studying computer engineering at Kansas State. So far it has been pretty exciting. I'm taking mostly entry level clas...

 
 
 

Bioshock Fan Trailer

I'm such a Bioshock fanboy now, I wanted to make my own trailer. So here it is. The song in the background is "Rapture" by Hurt. It works perfect! Video

 
 
 

Bioshock is amazing. (UPDATE)

Ok, I've played through the demo twice now. Here is what I think. In the demo you get to play the first part of the game, at least I think so. The main character gets into a plane crash and you take a submarine type water craft called a ba...

 
 
 

Why does digg hate Destructoid?

I was looking at posts from digg today when I stumbled across this post. I was the one who replied to his comment. I know you guys got slammed from another video game blog for voting on your posts, but isn't that what you are supposed to do...

 
 
 

Xbox is broken again!

Well, my Xbox is dead again. It all started last Sept., my Xbox starting freezing. When it would freeze, the screen would change to a solid color, for example the entire screen would be green. I sent the console in, and they fixed it, and s...

 
 
 

All-Pro Football 2K8 Demo Thoughts

After EA announced they had the exclusive rights to the NFL, I was an angry man. NFL 2K5 was no doubt the best football game that year, and EA had to go and ruin all the fun. When 2K announced APF 2K8, I was a happy man. New 2K football gam...
